Xiaomi has confirmed that its Mi 4 flagship smartphone along with Mi Note will be the first smartphones in its lineup to receive the latest Android 6.0 Marshmallow update. The company's MIUI Operations Manager in a Weibo post confirmed the news.

Both the Xiaomi Mi 4 and Mi Note will still run MIUI 7 version based on Android 6.0 Marshmallow, as per the company executive, who also added the first closed beta will roll out soon.

Notably, the company released Android Lollipop based MIUI 7 ROMs for its handsets in October this year.

The Chinese company has been delaying the launch of the long-anticipated Mi 5 flagship smartphone for months now. However, Xiaomi CEO Lei Jun recently claimed that the handset was "worth the wait" and was "very, very good".

Xiaomi in partnership with Microsoft released Windows 10 Mobile ROM for its flagship Mi 4 Android smartphone, specifically the LTE version of the handset.
